VIDEO: “Orange is the New Black” Releases First Scene of Season 2

Don’t worry, there are no spoilers here. The first scene of the second season of Orange is the New Black is short and intriguing and funny and heartbreaking all at once. And it’s only a minute long so imagine how crazy good the new episodes are going to be. Creator Jenji Kohan has already warned us that things will get a lot darker. Check out the video below to catch up on how things are going for Piper Kerman (Taylor Schilling) following the events of the season one finale. Hint: Not well.

The second season will be available in its entirety on Netflix June 6th.

  1. My girlfriend and I are already planning the day-long marathon we will have to celebrate Season 2. Why spread it out when you can put the mattress topper on the living room floor and not get up until the last episode?

    I can’t waaaaiiiit.
